Preserve Religious Freedom

Please reject any regulation that would require Faith Based Child Adoption Agencies to go against their organization's firmly held beliefs by forcing them to adopt children to homosexuals and cease their mission of helping children.

·         Faith-based agencies provide vital services to our communities. They must be allowed to continue the great work they are doing.

Forcing agencies and individuals to choose between following their own values or following the proposed discriminatory regulation would be an unprecedented violation of religious freedom in Virginia. Religious liberty is foundational to our Commonwealth and our country.
